Year 4

Wow! What an amazing week we have had in Peacock Class!

On Tuesday, we attended an Ancient Egyptian workshop, right here in school! We got dressed up as ancient Egyptians, complete with make-up! Then, we took turns to take part in 8 wonderful activities all of which were part of daily life in ancient Egyptian times! We even held artefacts that were around 3000 years old! Incredible!

All the children have worked hard in Maths this week, where we learnt about different triangles.

In English, we have been learning about the key features of instruction texts. The children are going to base their instructions on how to mummify a Pharaoh! We were very lucky to have a go at mummifying Bradley in class, where we removed Pharaoh Bradley’s brains and internal organs, (all role play of course!). A very big well done to Bradley for volunteering!

The children have loved the Music lessons led by Mr. Chambers, where he has been teaching all of us on how to play the ukulele. The children’s favourite song to practise at the moment is ‘Riptide’. I am so impressed with the way the children have learnt the chords so quickly and are able to move smoothly from chord to chord! 

What a lucky teacher I am to be able to spend Monday to Friday with such a wonderful, inquisitive, caring and funny class!
